Once again I find myself in the position of giving a reason as to why I havent blogged for a while. If you follow me on twitter you may have seen that the friend we lived with sent my boyfriend an email saying that he was selling the flat and that he wanted us to move out asap :(. Obviously this threw a massive spanner in the works as we have been lucky enough to be paying mates rates for the rent and are definitely not in a position to be paying proper London prices due to the boy studying a Masters and me earning pittance. So before I knew it we were packing up and moving back with the Boys parents....
At 25 this was not my idea of fun. We have been independent and lived alone for the last 4 and a half years whilst at Uni - only going home for a week over Christmas - so having to move felt like a massive step backwards. One hectic week later we are finally all unpacked and settled and it seems to be going quite well so far. One of the biggest upsides to the move is being able to have my own little studio! Above the detached garage the boys parents have a massive room that was mainly used for storing random stuff and as a gym but I have been lucky enough to empty out one end of the room to convert into my own crafty den. I am so excited I have pretty much been up there every day working on new things for Polka Dot Dreams and a new design project for my portfolio.
*Please excuse the numerous photos that now follow!!*
I am going to put some postcards and pictures on the wall and am on the look out for a cheap bookcase so I can store all my craft and fashion books up there but at the moment it is perfect!
What do you think of my new area? Do you have a space to call your own?
I also thought I would leave with a cute little GIF I made of little Bramble!
